Forum: forums Subject: pureftpd Error prevents CheckIn

I'm trying to checkin the item that is to be at details/dystopiaq014. However, I get this message when I checkin the item:

"One or more files (.pureftpd-upload.4d59f7df.15.3b31.75eda763 -- size: 0.0B) appears to still be FTP transferring -- please let it finish first and then reload this page"

I have checked the FTP server on my end, and everything is uploaded accurately and the file sizes are correct. I need to get this out by midnight. Is there a fix to this?

New error message:

"Checking item dir...
Item looks OK, submitting...
Item submission error! reason: The identifier chosen is already taken. You will need to try an alternate identifier"

I'm getting very frustrated with this. I took the good files and moved them to a new directory and renamed the old "dystopiaq014" directory as "deleteme." Apparently, that was a no-no?

I am now getting a new error message on the CheckIn page:

"Checking item dir...
No files appear to have been FTP uploaded.
Did you FTP upload to subdirectory "dystopiaq014" on server "items-uploads.archive.org"?
Please upload files there and revisit this page to proceed."

Sure enough, I went to my FTP account and the folder is missing! I went to re-create the release, but it told me "dystopiaq014" is already taken.

What do I do at this point?

I tried using this fix:

However, I get the same error message saying there are no files:

"Checking item dir...
No files appear to have been FTP uploaded.
Did you FTP upload to subdirectory "dystopiaq014" on server "items-uploads.archive.org"?
Please upload files there and revisit this page to proceed."
